That is 21 centers in total.
Pont-Sainte-Maxence is particularly concerned, but only following the insistence of the mayor (LR), Arnaud Dumontier.

It has been over a month since we made the request, but there was a vaccine supply problem.
In Saint-Aubin-en-Bray, the anger of the coordinator
A failure that also experienced Saint-Aubin-en-Bray, where the center was ready ... from mid-January, at the request of the Regional Health Agency (ARS).
